Opera Singer as Baritone

"The production also provided a good showcase for the Trinidadian baritone, Brian Green, whose performance as Papa Gede/Papageno marks the singer’s transition from traditional black roles in Porgy and Carmen Jones to an admirable and highly distinctive Mozartian bird catcher.” The Magic Flute, Adrian Mourby, Opera Now,England, Sept./Oct. 1999

Brian got his first taste of international competition in Vienna with the QRC/Holy Name Convent choir directed by Geraldine Connor and Michael Steele at the 1980 Youth Music Festival. In 1984, he was part of the Marionettes Chorale directed by Gretta Taylor, which placed second in the World Choral Festival in Cork, Ireland. Brian continued performing as a soloist and decided to specialize in opera. He performed as a high Baritone, and in 2010 started to redesign his repertoire towards Heldentenor roles, under the attentive guidance of specialists in this field.
